Martin John Callanan - 041209 Audio [mir009]
This is somewhat of a departure for artist Martin Callanan who normally works in installations involving the visitor as part of the work. This is Martin's first EP; consisting 4 tracks of pleasing ambient noise. Sound of places unnameable in out present time, the past or even the future unless everything goes completely wrong in a way only these four tracks can imagine over 19 minutes.
Run time 18:47
041209-03: "The more I learn about how a landscape is made and transformed the more I recognize that the earth is now a human artefact."
041209-05: "No man therefore can conceive anything, but he must conceive it in some place."
041209-07: "The land is important to me but even more important is the idea that it becomes a place because someone has been there."
041209-09: "If we all manage, throughout the entire network, to be punctual to the second, we will have endowed humanity with the most effective instrument for building a new world."

Varied and interesting
Track 1 and 3 are really noisy tracks, and 2 and 4 are quieter tracks. I can't get enough of track 2, its dark and minimalistic tone is excellent. Great stuff.
